Now that the GPS directs our path, we have fewer discussions but sometimes still wind up on a crazy route. Anyway, this idea of direction is often a part of Scripture. Let's look at some things God says about direction.
We are to direct our prayers to Him each morning.
"My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up" (Psalm 5:3).
He directs our path.
"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:6).
He directs our hearts.
"And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ" (2 Thessalonians 3:5).
He directs our steps.
"A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps" (Proverbs 16:9).
I don't know about you, but I need directions. I feel more confident when I see where I am going and what I am supposed to be doing. As I take time each day to commit my day to the Lord through prayer, I invariably find He directs my day. It might not be the path I had in mind, but it is the path God designed. And as I remember that He directs through love, I find my heart more willing to be patient and trusting. I might have my own idea of what the day should bring, but when I allow the Lord to direct my steps, He has a fantastic way of making the day more than I could have imagined.
So, if you need direction, ponder these few verses and ask the Lord to do the directing. He's much more trustworthy than a GPS or MAP!
